Megan-Friendly Granola

Granola is a food product that I have always had a hard time finding in the grocery stores. They’re either loaded with sugars, and the one time I find a appropriately-sweetened granola, it’s filled with the nuts that I am allergic to. I haven’t bought granola at the grocery store for as long as I can remember so I’m surprised that it took me this long to make this on my own. But here she is!
